New Android Phone - finally took the plunge - suggestions for apps?
#21
Congrats on your new purchase and passing your test!

Two of my favorite apps are Alarm Clock Extreme Free - because my alarm clock is so complicated to set, and I can't read the button labels, I find using my phone or my Kindle Fire so much easier. You can label the alarms, make them repeat, etc. so they can be used as medication reminders, too.

I also like Out of Milk - a great shopping list in which you can make a list of often used items in the Pantry List and just copy them over to the shopping list - and share it with others in the family. Like the people I really want to shop instead of me. Smile

Another alarm clock app worth checking out is Gentle Alarm. And a good alternative calendar app is Business Calendar.

Smart phones are so cool!! My favorite and most useful apps are: Mighty Grocery, the paid version. You can create permanent lists for your favorite markets, set up by aisle. You can pick your items from a master list or enter them manually. I've set it up to sync with my tablet and hubby's phone so he can shop if he's in town. Really a cool app!! I love Instagram too! My grandsons take lots of photos that get shared with everyone that follows them so it's enjoyable to see what they are up to. A good weather app is essential and I found I prefer eRadar HD. Frequently will use my dictionary/thesaurus too. Another one used a lot is ColorNote where I create lists of things I would otherwise write down on paper and then loose. I would be utterly lost without my calendar app. All of these are available through the Play Store and mostly free.

Some android apps that I have found useful:
Root Explorer, Titanium Backup, AdAway, LBE Privacy, DroidWall, Zoner Antivirus.
You might need to get root access before you can install some of them (Root Explorer).

Watch out SS...sounds like pssnn is an Android power user! I'm too chicken to root my phone and am happy with stock. My latest and greatest app addition is called Easy Battery Saver. It has several different power saving modes and I use it on Intelligent Mode and it is Amazing how much more battery capacity I'm getting with it. In Intelligent Mode, it gains significant battery capacity by shutting down mobile data and background sync when the screen is off.

DONT DOWNLOAD "EASY BATTERY SAVER" I DID AND IT KILLED MY PHONE (SAMSUNG S3)IT HAS A VIRUS ATTACHED. NOW IT WONT TURN ON HAVE TO TAKE IT INTO THE SHOP WHO WILL SEND IT AWAY TO HAVE IT FACTORY RESET. MEANS I LOOSE ALL MY SETTINGS - IT WILL HOPEFULLY BE BACK TO FACTORY SETTINGS
Happy sleeping

Actually, I don't believe there is a virus attached. I participate in a Motorola Razr forum and there were people that complained about losing network connectivity after installing Easy Battery Saver. Motorola even put an app in the Play Store to restore network connections. If you read the instructions with the Easy Battery Saver app, it explains that it changes some settings on your phone to perform some of the battery saving actions. And it explicitly states that you should go into the Easy Battery Saver's settings menu and click on "Mobile Network Reset" in order to restore your phone's mobile network settings to original values if you experience any connectivity problems and also before uninstalling the app if you decide you don't want to use it anymore. I haven't had any issues with the app and I've been using it for over a month now. I think people that had difficulties with it didn't read about the Mobile Network Reset function within the app.

In the brief looking it up that I did, it seemed to be two stories about the same app. Some say what you did, that there's a problem in the way it connects or whatever and you lose all but wifi. The other say it is evil and steals all the personal data from the phone then crashes it.

Oooh. Android geeks! This will be fun! Smile Smile Smile
I have a Motorola. It's almost 2 years old now.
It's really a computer that just happens to be a phone too sometimes.
I use Advanced Task Killer Free 2-3 times a day just to shut down all the crap that
starts up.
I also use it with Zeo the little brain-wave sleep monitor. That lets me know if I am getting in enough REM sleep
and also logs waking events. (sometimes your brain wakes up but you don't know about it!)
..and books! You can haul an entire library around in this thing. Great for SciFi reading.
The rest is all work stuff that's too boring to mention here.

Cheers! =^.^=

Hello fellow Motorola Android owner! You might want to Google Android Task Killers. There's numerous articles out there that say task killers can actually do more harm than good if you're on the Gingerbread or later OS.

Hi B36!
Indeed you are right, that is why I always read the reviews on any application before I just install it.
That filters out a lot of trash.
I also keep an eye on apps that *change* over time.
A flashlight application that prompts for a upgrade that wants to see your contact list and other stuff...gets deleted.

Okay
